Casual lunch with business partner near Quantico

An out-of-state business partner and I are meeting up in Stafford near Quantico on Rt 1 (just off Rt 95) on Friday. It’s just he and I doing an all-day planning session and I’m looking for a place within 10-15 minutes for a lunch break where we can continue to talk business but have a change of scenery and obviously some good food. So the area is roughly between Dumfries to the north and Aquia/Garrisonville Rd to the south.

I’m not at all familiar with that area so I’m wide open for suggestions. I don’t want anything too formal but I doubt that’s an option anyway. If there are no suggestions we’ll probably end up at Chic-Fil-A or Firehouse Subs or whatever, so the bar is set low.

Kabobs? Tex/Mex/Latin? Chinese? Thai? Burgers? BBQ? Sandwiches? Pizza? Anything?

  1. The only place I've tried in that area is Bella Cafe-good sandwiches & a comfortable spot to chat. I see from Yelp that they've moved, address is 3846 Jefferson Davis Hwy, stafford, VA

    Just going by reviews, I'd be tempted to try Kabob Corner, sounds like a favorite spot in Woodbridge, Al-Zaytoun.

    1. re: thistle5

      Al Zaytoun has excellent kebabs, curries, and a nice mint limeaid. Kinda small though. A coworker who lives in Stafford likes Bahay Kubo Cuisine, a Filipino restaurant, but I've never been. Astoria Pizza is kind of a dive, but their pies and souvlakis are good.

    2. I go down there a lot for business. I'm totally smitten by the Bier Garten, Roadhaus Eatery and Bier Garten

      1. Thanks to everyone for your great recommendations. I'm disappointed to report that circumstances prevented us from leaving the premises for lunch. I had decided to try Bahay Kubo Cuisine, confirmed that they were open and all was set but I just couldn't make it happen.

        Someone should get to this Filipino restaurant and check it out, it looks promising.
